"If you want to fix the problem, you have to understand it. These are criminals that have infiltrated the US government and usurped control of various agencies; it is not the agencies themselves to blame."

This is something I've been thinking a lot more about recently; specifically from a Philosophical perspective. Often our immediate reaction is to say it's Gov. that's the problem, and that is correct, but there is more to it than that. Gov. is really nothing more than a tool. The problem stems from the powers that this tool can enforce. When you have an Offensive Government with ever expanding powers, it allows for more coercion, manipulation, and essentially more tyranny to ensue.

If you have a Defensive Gov., one that can only exhibit negative powers, you rein in the power it has to enforce over other people. There is essentially no way to eliminate people from manipulating or coercing others, however there is a way to greatly reduce these sorts of tyrannical acts and that is by restricting the powers a Gov. can have. While Manipulation and Coercion are impossible to eradicate, It needs to be made a point that if they are going to remain prevalent, it's much better to have them expressed through the hands and power of individuals rather than through the powers of Gov. and Law.

Not sure if that makes any sense. Essentially IMO the core of the problem stems from the powers that a particular Gov. can exercise. There is no way to stop people from wanting to manipulate and coerce others, but you can limit the means by which they can have such power to do so. The only way to do this is limit the powers a Gov. can have. Then, no matter how big a corporation or special interest group with what they seek to accomplish can be much easier countered or deterred.
